Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? I don't know, I didn't use the directions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like that it is super easy and fun to wear. I dislike the mega-length. I'm just shy of 5'3" so I shortened the pattern 3", then cut off another inch from the top of the fabric. I wore it once and now I want to shorten it again. It dragged on the ground a little and got caught in the grocery cart wheels.
Fabric Used: rayon challis
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: the previously mentioned dramatic need for shortening.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, though not for awhile because it really needs an extra light fabric, otherwise its just going to widen the hips.
Conclusion: great maxi skirt pattern that whips up in no time!
